Arkavathy Dam

Arkavathi River is a river in India, originating at Nandi Hills of Kolar District. It is a tributary of the Kaveri River, which it joins at Kanakapura called sangama in kannada after flowing through Kolar District and Bangalore Rural district. The river is used by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board to provide 135 million liters of drinking water per day to the city of Bangalore, or about 20% of the entire city’s water. The water is taken from two reservoirs built on the river, the Hesaraghatta (or Hesseraggatta) which was built in 1894 and the Tippagondanahalli Reservoir (or T G Halli), which was built in 1933

Chunchi Fall

One day outing spot in Kanakapura taluk in Bangalore Rural district. The river is Arkavati. This place is about 90kms from Bangalore city. Beautiful place surrounded by wonderful forestfalls by the looking at the gorgeous rocks you can apprehend how ferociously water flowed in former years. Unfortunately we could not play in water at this place, as getting into water is not possible so. We have limited our self to just take so few snap’s in our camera and carried lot’s of memories with ourselves. We sat on a big rock, with water, green trees, rocks surrounding and wonderful clouds above us, frankly speaking it was one of the best lunches we ever had. We can never get such a wonderful feeling in n-star hotel also. It’s not what we had but it’s the way we had it.

Grape Farm

on our way 4m chunchi fall we had a stop over @ a grape farm(“Man being reasonable must get drunk; The best of life is but intoxication; Glory, the grape, love, gold – in these are sunk – The hopes of all men and of every nation” Lord Byron)


Sangam is the confluence of Rivers Kaveri (Cauvery) and Arkavathi. One more nice picnic spot along (NH209) it can be reached by taking a 33km deviation to the left, soon after Kanakapura, The last five kms to Sangam is an enjoyable drive through the ghat roads, with picturesque hills all around you. Water is not so deep
